Fred's halfway through his winter break, gearing up for his first concert of the year: the annual Hymns and Spirituals Concert with the Mark Sterbank Group in Charleston, S.C., happening this year at the Simons Center Recital Hall, 54 St. Philip St. For more information call 843-766-8814.
The following week he'll cross the Atlantic for a tour of Spain with his Generations Trio. The tour will include stops in the Canary Islands and on the island of Mallorca!
While he's been home Fred's been preparing for the completion this year of his blues album, which got underway last year and will be finished this year at the Little Big Beat Studios in Lichtenstein. Click here to enjoy 360-degree video from the Live Session the New JBs played there last June.
Look forward to more jazz in 2018, too, since Fred got bitten and smitten anew with the musical genre that was his first love. Many thanks to his "bone brother" Teddy Adams and the talented young trio that accompanied them in December at the Good Times Jazz Bar in Savannah. Stay tuned for more dates to come.
